Spiral Galaxy M33

M33 is the next nearest spiral galaxy to the Milky Way after the Andromeda Galaxy. The field of view of this image, which was taken by the Suprime-Cam attached to the Subaru Telescope, is about eight times of the size of a single Suprime-Cam shot. It covers an area of sky about eight times the size of the full Moon. Individual stars, star associations, star-forming regions, and dark nebulae can easily be seen in the image.
